View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party trekking through Al Batin sands during their journey across the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali) from Al Dhafra sands to Liwa oasis. A member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, herds a group of loaded camels up a dune. The man is carrying a rifle and a camel stick on his shoulder. In the background is a large salt flat (sabkha) encircled by high dunes. Clusters of shrubs grow along the right edge of the flat, where it meets the dunes.
